Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle once again give a pulse to the British royal family. The Duke of Sussex asked Buckingham to place a wreath in his name at the Cenotaph – London’s memorial to the fallen – during the Remembrance Day celebration. The request was denied, alleging that Enrique no longer represents the monarchy, and sources close to the palace assure that Queen Elizabeth II was not informed about her grandson’s request.
Despite the refusal, Enrique didn’t break tradition and staged his own tribute by visiting the Los Angeles National Cemetery with his wife Meghan Markle, where they laid flowers from the garden of their Santa Barbara mansion on the grave of two Commonwealth soldiers. «For all those who have served or are serving. Thank you, ”he wrote. The scene was captured by photographer Lee Morgan and the images distributed by them. A gesture criticized by many Britons who consider it a public relations strategy and a pulse on the British royal family, which they have not visited for seven months. It is not understood that they fight for a private life and distribute the images seeking media coverage.
Enrique, who has had a hard time giving up his military titles, wore a suit jacket and wore a poppy allusive to the day, as well as military decorations. Meghan chose a belted black wool coat by Brandon Maxwell that she paired with heels by British designer Jennifer Chamandi and the Cartier watch that belonged to Lady Di.
It is anyone’s guess if the couple and their son Archie will travel to Great Britain at Christmas to be with the royal family. The former bodyguard of his mother, Princess Diana, adventure that Enrique will return “sooner or later” with his family. «All his friends, family and his culture are here. His brother is the one who will hug him and bring him back to the fold, “he told a tabloid. The palace has ordered Windsor staff to set up Frogmore Cottage, the couple’s official London residence, in case the surprise visit comes sooner than expected. «I am careful not to put my family at risk for certain things; I try to be quite clear with what I say and not make it controversial, “Meghan told Fortune magazine. His statement was interpreted as an attempt by the Duchess to soften the tense situation they live with the royal family after their flight.
